of "fading away."
For the time being, his fu-

office to January.
Among other things, he'd like-
to become a lecturer and an
honorary Senator.

Mr. Truman, who announced
Saturday night he will not seek

Panam Gasoline Jumps One Cent;
President To See Company Heads
President Alclblades Arosemena and his cabinet de-
clared this afternoon that the government will oppose
all efforts to Increase the retail price of gasoline.
This decision was agreed upon at a Cabinet council
held after at least two gasoline Importers upped the
etall price of gasoline to 39 cents.
A meeting between representatives of the four gaso-
line importers here and membevs of the Arosemena cab-
inet was rescheduled for 3 p.m. to notify the companies
of the government's decision.
The price of gasoline suddenly Jumped from to 3
cents today in the Repuklle of Pwsama. ______

importing companies, that couM be reached thta morn

The fourth (Shell) oould not be reached for earn-
ment. ___ .
A meeting between the managers of the companies
was scheduled to be held at the Presidencia with Presi-
dent Alclblades Arosemena and seme of his cabinet
members at 1:3$ Jn. ... u_ _in
The one-cent increase in the price of gasoline wiU
represent yearly increase of S7ea,tee in the cast of
Irving, according to Informed sources.
The two companies that announced the increase to-
day said It was justified by the Increased cost of mast-
time freight which has gone up twice since the last in-
crease la the price of gasoline, and an Increase in the
export price of gasoline.
Caessms importers here attempted to raise the price
of asettne te 3* cents mat year but were overruled by
the now non-existent Price Control Office.

Drew Pearson says: Sen. Bob Kerr combines rare attri-
butes; Mingles Bible-pounding with unethical con-
duct; Truman appreciated Kerr's stand on MacArthur.
WASHINGTONThree years ago if anyone had told Senate
old-timers that two freshman senators, Kerr of Oklahoma and
Kefauver of Tennessee would be battling it out for the Presi-
dency In 1952, the prediction would have been called ridiculous:
Yet that's exactly what Is happening in snebraska today.
Furthermore, in view of the need of new blood In the Demo-
cratic party, It's a healthy development.
And since the senator from Tennessee has been more pub-
licized than the senator from Oklahoma, here is a bird's-eye
view of the likable, Bible-pounding Bob Kerr who now aspires
to the Presidency of the United States.
Senator Kerr combines a number of rare attributes.
He Is at one and the same time the most pious ope of the
most powerful, the most genial, and probably the wealthiest
member of the United States Senate.
He also has a lot of couragethough some people call it
Whether you agree'with Bob Kerr or not, you cant help
llklne him.
You also have to respect his piety. The fact that he teaches
a Baptist Sunday school is not mere political window-dressing.
He takes his religion seriously.
He also takes prohibition seriously, and is one of the few
senators who never serves alcoholic beverages at his table.
But though religion also implies high ethical standards, the
Sunday-school-teaching senator from Oklahoma has brazenly
fluted the Senate's standards of ethics and good conduct.
Senate rule 12 was set up by senators in order to disqual-
ify any member who has a direct pecuniary Interest In a piece
of legislation.
Though the rule Is not compulsory, precedent has made
it customary.
And, according to the Senate parliamentarian, It has been
followed consistently for many years.
Thus, Ben. Warren Austin of Vermont, now ambassador to
the United Nations, disqualified himself from voting on a talc
bill because he had Investments In talc.
Senator Kerr, on the other hand, not only Introduced the
Kerrr bill which would have had the effect of increasing the
firlce of natural gas carried In Interstate pipelines, but became
ts No. 1 lobbyist.
He buttonholed senators, urged, cajoled and demanded that
they vote for a bill which stood to make his company several
hundred thousand dollars.
Finally, after the bill was vetoed by his friend, the President
Kerr and the attorney for Phillips Petroleum, ex-Whit* House
counsel Clark Clifford, managed to lobby a ruling through the
Federal Power Commission which accomplished the same price
hiking ends as the Kerr bill.
Yet the senator from Oklahoma had several million dol-
lars of pecuniary Interest directly tied up In his bill to remove
the Federal Power Commission's control over the price of nat-
ural gas. *
Kerr owns oil and gas lands valued at a total of around
one hundred million dollars.
On this, he and his partner, who operate the Kerr-McOf
Oil Industries Co., officially reported a 1040 gross Income of
$14,930,150 with a net Income of $1,218,627.
In 1048, their gross income was $12.538,058, on which was.
paid an Income tax of only $29,053due to the generous oil de-
pletion benefits given the oil companies under the Federal tax
Kerr's company also has at least four contracts to sell nat-
ural gas in Interstate commerce, thus Immediately benefiting
from the law he battled through Congress.
One is with Texas Qaa Transmission Co., one with South-
ern Natural Oas, one with Trunkline Gas Supply, and One
with EUPaso Natural Gas. ,
v Their records are all on file with the Federal PowrXotontl-
Yet during Senate debate, none of. his colleagues challen-
ged the senator from Oklahoma regarding the, ethics of his
conduct In lobbying for a bill which meant a small fortune to
his company, and which would cost Northern housewives an
estimated $506,000,000 a year in Increased gas bills.
Kerr shook his finger under colleagues' noses, demanded that
they vote "right," and made himself something of a nuisance,
yet none of them asked why he did not abide by Senate rul
18 and abstain from voting for his own pocketbook.
Bob Kerr operates on the theory that If you keep quoting
from the Bible often enough and have money and power
enough, people will forget certain other things.
And this pretty much what has happened.
When the RFC scandals were investigated last year, the
public heard much about a mink coat but nothing about Sen-
ator Kerr's brother, Aubrey.
Bob Kerr was sworn in as a U.S. Senator in January 1040
and didn't wait long to put his brother In the job handling
RFC law business in Oklahoma.
Brother Aubrey took over in February 1949Just one month
Senators investigating the RFC last year turned up various
Interesting pieces of patronage, but considerately overlooked
or failed to rememberthe RFC plum handed the Kerr family.
Even President Truman has a kindly memory as far as the
genial senator from Oklahoma Is concerned.
The President said not a word when the senator and the
presidents old pal, chairman Mon Wallgren of the Federal
Power Commission managed to reverse the Presidential veto of
the Kerr bill.
But perhaps this was because the President vu so grate-
ful to Bob for being the one senator with courage enough to
stand up and be counted in the fight over General MacArthur.
Kerr took on MacArthur slnglehanded at a time when
public opinion was strongly for the general.
That was the actual beginning of today's Nebraska primary.
For It was then that the President first began talking about
Bob Kerr as a vice-presidential candidatethe real Job to which
the senator from Oklahoma aspires.

Shoving And Ducking Hots Up
In Democrats' No. 1 Problem
WASHINGTON, April 1. -(UP)- House
speaker Sam Rayburn ruled himself out today as
a Democratic Presidential candidate but Illinois
Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson acknowledged that party
leaders are putting "considerable pressure' on
him to run. ',
Vice President Alben W. Barkley refused to
commit himself now and Gov. Frank J. Lausche
of Ohio, mentioned as a posibihty, said he will
discourage any effort to get him in the race.
Friends believe Barkley will announce this week.
There was no lack, however, of
Democratic Presidential possibil-
ities now that Mr. Truman has
removed himself.
At least two "favorite sons"
were boomed In their home states
Oov. G. Mennen Williams of
Michigan and Sen. Brlen McMa-
hon of Connecticut.
Amid the confusion caused
by Mr. Truman's withdrawal.
Democratic polticos kept a
close ere on the Nebraska and
Wisconsin primaries today to
get a new line on two avowed
party candidatesSens. Rob-
ert 8. Rerr and Estes Kefauver.

candidate, was not entered in

porters waged a battle for write-

Write-ins are not permitted In
the Wisconsin contest.
Rayburn and Barkley were
questioned about Presidential
politics yesterday as they left the
white House after the -regular
Monday morning meeting be-
tween Mr. Truman and his Con-
gressional lieutenants.
They were accompanied by
Senate Democratic leader John
W. McCormack (Mass.).
Rayburn replied with a flat
"no" when asked If he would be
a candidate.
But Barkley, who Is reported
ready to announce his decision
one way or another soon, refused
to make a statement or to dis-
cuss the Democratic convention
Rayburn said politics did not
figure particularly In Mr. Tru-
man's talk with his Congression-
al leaders.
"Ill tell you one thing," he sale?
Jovially, "he didn't come out for
any of the four of us."
However, Rep. Wright Patman
(D-Tex.) urged Texas Democrats
to support Rayburn. He describ-
ed the speaker, who Is 70, as a

McMahon said he will confer

fore revealing his political "in-
tentions.'' Democratic Connecti-
cut chairman John M. Bailey said
he plans to carry the McMahon
banner outside the state in an
"all-out" bid for support .
Williams said he would accept
"national service." But the 41-
year-old Michigan governor add-
ed that he will not make a drive
for the nomination at the party's
national convention.
In New Tork, state chairman
Paul E. Fitzpatrick started
conferences with party leaders
to decide where to throw his
state's 94 convention votes. The
New York organisation had
been backing Mr, Truman.

end of the fiscal year 1051-1052
and the start of a new year in
government books that will call
for spending $4,335,000.
That Is the biggest spending
program since the Confederation
and more than was spent during
the first three years of World
War II.
Finance Minister Douglas C.
Abbott will tell Parliament and
the people next week how he in-
tends to cover the mammoth
wooded section of this resort spending program with tax re-
town after Mrs. Symmons led
police to the scene.
Police chief Walter Comstock
said Mrs. Simmons went to Paul
Kimball hospital last night with
deep cuts across both arms in-
flicted with a razor blade. She
spoke to hospital authorities, but
no one could understand her.
Today a Polish-speaking nurse
talked to Mrs. Simmons and
learned about the tragedy.
Mrs. Simmons entered a po-
lice car and directed Comstock
and police Sgt. Harold Bailey
to an Isolated section west of
route 4. At sight of four beer
cans, which police believe she
had left as a marker, Mrs. Sim-
mons ordered the car to haft.
She then led the two police-
men to an earthen embankment
where the bodies of the chil-
dren lay.
Observers believed his speech
would serve as an indication
whether the government is ready
for general elections.
Speculation today had It that
the government is set for elec-
tions at any time and Is waiting
only for a good Issue to arise on
which to campaign.

Police questioned Simmons in
an effort to establish the mo-
tive for the killings.

The third Marine air wing has
been authorized to start moving
to its new home at the Miami,
Fla., Marine Corps air station as
space becomes available. Its
organization has not developed
as rapidly as that of the ground

The Senate has passed a bill
setting a Marine Corps maxi-

combat and supply troops and
airmen. It also would provide
four full strength divisions and
four air wings.
The Senate bill also would
make the Marine Corps com-
mandant a "consultant" to the
Joint Chiefs of Staff.
A bill ready for House con-
sideration would provide a Ma-

of 300,000, a maximum of 400,-

wings, and make the command-
ant a full-fledged member of

A hammer and a four-foot
long club, both blood-stained,
were found at the scene, along
with a razor-blade which police

If East takes his eight of clubs,

an entry. South can lead the
deuce of clubs to the seven and
then discard his losing hearts on
the king and queen of spades.
East is expected to see this
danger, and he rises to the emer-

with his eight of clubs. Now
South can huff and puff, but he
will still lose two heart tricks. He
cannot reach the dummy to get
his discards.
It's a beautiful hand, and I
congratulate my Australian
friends on their Ingenuity. Never-
theless, I must report what hap-
pened when I slipped this hand
into a duplicate board at a local
duplicate game recently.
South usually played the hand
at six no-trump Instead of six
clubs. With a diamond opening,
he couldn't afford to give up any
cute tricks In the attempt to
reach dummy. The enemy would

Only one pair played the hand

Cralg from Cristobal was chosen. Then Miles Pace from "C"

Sromlse. Next came a practical test In the firing o Mi's and
Third competing were the platoons. The Special Platoon
from Crltuobal placed first. This platoon was made up of boys
who did not take ROTC but had made up their own platoon.
They were excellent.
Last, but certainly not least, were.the companies. "A" Com-
pany won with a decisive victory. Companies "C" and "E" came
in second and third. Commanding "A" Company was Cadei

Charles was the harassed father; Kayleen, the temperamental
but husband-craving young girl; and Noble, the nervous hypo-

of his Canal service.
Lauterbach and his wife plan
I to leave May 16 on the Panama

The first week end of match
play In the Pan American World
Airways Invitational Tournament
at Gamboa was featured by the
establishment of a new course
record and a few upsets.
Johnny MacMurray carded a
68 during his match with Tony'
Jankus on Saturday to break his
own previous record of 69, which'
had withstood the attack of
Isthmian golfers since 1949. Mac-'
Murray scored a 35 going out and
a 33 commg home; the 18 holes
produced five birdies. Tony shot
a 73 which under ordinary condi-
tions and against most compe-
titors would have won the match.
Maury Muller defeated Jim
Rilev 2 and l and Perc Graham
outscored George Rlley 1-up. To
many golfers these results were1
considered upsets, but a closer
analysis finds that Muller scored
a 75 with two three-putt greens,
and It Is seen that this victory
was no fluke. Perc Graham also;
played excellent -golf to beat
George, who was two down on
the turn and four down going in-
to No. 15. With almost sure de-
feat facing him, George staged
his well-known home stretch
drive and won the next three
holes. He fell one hole short of
tying the match when Graham
halved No. 18.
Mitten defeated Anbal Galin-
do 5 and 4 when he shot a 71. Ga-
Undo played well but couldn't
overcome the birdies 'Doc' pitch-
ed at him.
The Gerrans-Bchmltt match
was expected to- be close and
hard fought. This expectation
proved correct. At no time did
more than one win separate
them. The out-going nine was
even and all holes on the in-nine
were halved with the exception
of No. 18, which Gerrans won.
Both players demonstrated re-
markable coolness and control
throughout the match. They both
shot 77s. __

With Blazing 100
Track and field fans are still
buzzing and shaking their heads
In utter amazement at the blaz-
ing 9.7 for 100 yards that Guiller-
mo Torraca ran the other night
at the Balboa Stadium. This Is
the fastest 100 yards ever run on
the Balboa track, and in all prob-
ability it is about the fastest that
has ever been run locally.
In fact, Torraca's time of 9.7
would be fast in any company,
and Army authorities are already
considering this lad as prospec-
tive Olympic material. With this
boy coming to front as he did last
Thursday, It begins to look as If
the 100 might be THE race In the

Though Cristobal's chances of
taking the second half remain
only mathematical, where there
Is life there's hope, and It will be
with this thought In mind that
the High School lads will be tak-
ing the field against the league-
leading Pabst nine tonight at 7
o'clock at Mt. Hope Stadium.
High School's Job wil be more
than cut out for them when they
face Pabst. They will have to
overcome the offerings of one of
the top hurlers In the loop when
they face Noel Gibson.
Luke Palumbo will send John-
ny Hatgl to the mound In an ef-

hopes alive. ,_.
Any aspirations Cristobal High
might have had towards sweep-
ing both halves of the 1952 At-
lantic Twilight League, were vir-
tually wiped out Sunday after-
noon when the Tigers bowed
twice to the Powell nine by
scores of 4-2 and 5-2. "was the
second consecutive doubleheader
dropped by Cristobal and their
fourth straight loss.
The first half champions, CHS,
are now two and one-half games
off the pace-setting Pabst nine
On the other hand the double
win for Powell's put them in
strong contention for second hall
honors, moving, the garage-men
to within one-half game of the
lead. Powell's and CHS have only
three games remaining to be
played. Pabst has two. Thus the
second half race In the Atlantic
Twilight League has now nar-
rowed down to a two-team race
between Pabst and Powell's.

Tomorrow at 4:30 p.m. at Dia-

will resume their feud that Is
making history In the FastUch
These two teams have met
three times in the second half
and have yet to come to a de-
cision. In their last two battles,
the Pumas had to claw their
way from behind to overcome
two and three run deficits to
earn a deadlock in the last in-
ning of both games.
To say that it is discouraging
to both teams that they cannot
knock each other out of the race
is putting It mildly. If practice
and hard work on the part of
the teams and their staffs will
be the deciding factor, then this
encounter could easily end up
in another tie game. Both clubs
are working out dally in an ef-

Rickey went as high as $40,000 outbidding the White Sox
tor Frankle Van Burkleo, a large 17-year-old left-handed pltch-
er-flrst baseman-outfielder freshly graduated from Los Angeles'
Jbhn Marshall High.
There to an Interesting story in connection with Jim Waugh
a six-foot three, 18-year-old right-handed pitcher who may
stick with tha Buccaneers this year. Frank Miller, a former mi-
nor league pitcher, developed young Waugh at Lancaster, O..
with the intention of turning him over to Casey Stengel and
-the Yankees, but on the lad's graduation from high school last

5 Young Italians
Quit Reds, Rejoin
Catholic Church-
Five young Italians announced
their break with the Communist
Party and their return to the
Catholic Church in a formal de-
claration published ln the Vati-
can City newspaper Osservatore
Romano today.
Osservatore printed their
statement, together with a com-
mentary emphasizing the in-
compatibility of Catholic doc-
trine with Communism,
The five youths said they were
former members of the "Party of
the Christian Left" and became
Communists when the party was
They said they had actually
quit the Communists early in
1951 but had decided to publish
their decision following Christ-
mas, ln which Pope Pius XII
branded Communism as a doc-
trine "destructive of human dig-
nity and freedom."
The youths' declaration said:
"We decided to make this deci-
sion public following the Christ-
mas message of the Holy Father
to the Roman people because we
wanted to clarify our position as
Catholics and to testify our full
obedience to the Pontiff for the
benefit of those whose conscien-
ces may have been disturbed by
our behaviour."
The declaration was signed by
Felice Bandro, Fe Dostlani, Ma-
rio Motta, Ubaldo Scassellattl
and Giorgio Sebregondi.

the result of an air drop of an
atomic missile at atomic prov-
ing grounds 75 miles north of

a. m. today.
It was the first in a new aeries

the blast was barely visible and
several minutes passed before
the usual atomic cloud rose
above a bank of cumulus clouds
on the horizon.
